New Publication: The Enemy on Display: The Second World War in Eastern European Museums

This book presents a useful methodology for examining museum images and provides a critical analysis of the role historical museums play in the contemporary world. As the catastrophes of World War II still exert an enormous influence on the national identities of Russians, Poles, and Germans, museum exhibits can thus play an important role in this process.

Das Schlagwort „Judenfrage“ fand im 19. Jahrhundert Eingang in die politischen Auseinandersetzungen vieler Länder Europas. Nichtjuden wie Juden, Philosemiten wie Antisemiten, Liberale, Konservative und Sozialisten benutzten es, um ihre jeweiligen Positionen zur Gleichstellung der Juden darzulegen, aber auch, um allgemeine Fragen des jeweiligen nationalen Selbstverständnisses zu verhandeln.
